Exterior electrical issues. Sellers and buyers beware.
Safety is number one priority at Desert Sun Home Inspections in Carlsbad, New Mexico.
This is why when inspecting home for a buyer or a seller there seems to always be an issue with the exterior electrical.
There are issues from missing or damaged receptacle covers to the unprotected wiring.
Here is a shot of an electrical conduit that is missing the cover. No one seemed to know why the cover was missing.
And yes the wiring was live wires. This is an safety issue.
Here we have a shot of the exterior four plug set that is not protected from the elements and is not within a GFI or GFCI system.
There are a lot of issues that could be a deadly combination when it comes to electrical and the safety of that exterior electrical.
Here we have a line ran to the garage for power. The line is just a romex 120 volt 20 amp line. But the exposed line has deteriorated to the point the wires are exposed.
This could end up being a deadly situation for a family and their children.
Always get a good home inspection when buying a home.
This is why you always get a "FULL Home Inspection" by a certified inspector. For the peace of mind.
